The Most Important Thing #7: Susan

Better late than never, right?! 🙂


This is my own dear mother!  I’m so glad to have her as a part of the project because I value her opinion very much.  She grew me and raised me and loved me always.  Though we don’t always see eye to eye on everything, she is someone I highly respect, admire and care for deeply.

I took this picture of her last year at Christmas time.  Though I spent a few days with her this past week I didn’t manage to get my camera out and take many shots – my excuse is that it was cold outside and no one likes to be behind or in front of the camera in the cold.  I just got back from Brazilian summer, okay?  I need to ease into winter 😉  Anyways, this is a shot she liked and though I think I have taken better, more “artsy” and “portraity” type photos of her, at the end of the day, if you’ve made the subject happy, I believe you’ve succeeded.

What do you believe is the most important thing in life?

As for what I think is the most important thing in life, after sufficient clean water, food, shelter and good health of course, would be to have balance in your life.  (work, play, friends, family, serving others, living your dreams.)   It’s hard to choose just one thing.

    this is a beautiful photo of your mom, Linz!

    it’s refreshing to see play, relationships, heartfelt service & walking out personal dreams as priorities: I can see your mom’s influence on you, for sure! : )
